Hundreds of articles seem to be posted every day on why the prices of gold and silver are going north of $5,000 & $100 ozt. respectively, or conversely to below $1,000 and $15, respectively. Unfortunately most of what is written is self-serving and/or wishful thinking. Some is what I call nothing more than financial entertainment devoid of substance. Occasionally a thought provoking article is posted and when that happens munKNEE.com is there with it. Below are some such articles that are currently in the munKNEE.com vault.

Those in control will not allow the gold price to reach $18,000 an ounce where the 18,000 DOW sits today, but the DOW could drop 90%, as it did in 1929, to 1800 and gold rise to $1,800 an ounce! Could one accept the very real possibility that the DOW will unhinge by 50%…and gold rise to $9,000 an ounce? Look at these historical DOW to GOLD ratios.
Given the fact that a) the historical movement of silver is 90 – 98% correlated with gold-silver gold, b) silver is currently greatly undervalued relative to its average long-term historical relationship with gold and c) many analysts predict a parabolic rise in the price of gold over the next 5 years it is realistic to expect that silver will also escalate dramatically in price – but by how much? This article applies the historical silver to gold ratios to come up with a range of prices based on specific price levels for gold being reached.
Here’s the best reason to buy and hold gold and silver, at any price, and especially at these artificially suppressed prices.
Over the years only 42 pundits have been bold enough to provide a specific date as to when their forecast for the future price of gold (and silver, in some cases) would be realized. This article provides that information along with the criteria & rationale for their determinations.
Over the years only 14 pundits have been bold enough to provide a specific date as to when their forecast for the future price of silver would be realized. This article provides that information along with the criteria & rationale for their determinations.
Jim Rickards is of the opinion (see HERE) that a global currency reset is coming in the not too distant future in the form of an IMF issue, known as a Special Depository Receipt. It will be backed by 20-40% gold from the reserves of the global central banks which will necessitate revaluing bullion to around $7,000 a troy ounce, or there won’t be enough of it to do the job. The unknown factor is the timeline: does this happen this year – or in five years?
